Ghost Box Website back after a brief Exorcism

Our thanks to those of you that noticed that the Ghost Box website was down for a couple of days. There was a small technical problem but everything is now up and running as usual.

His Name was Legion

His Name Was Legion, Andrew Caldecott’s supernatural tale, adapted for radio by Lawrence Norfolk and Belbury Poly, will be aired on Resonance FM on 28th January at midnight.

The story is part of a radio event called Weird Tales for Winter organised by Jonny Mugwump to be broadcast over 8 days from 25th January 2010.

You can listen on 104.4FM if you’re in London or otherwise you can stream Resonance live through their website or even easier, via the gizmo over on the right hand side of this very blog. If you miss this story or any of the others you can “listen again” at the Weird Tales for Winter microsite for a week or so after the broadcast. Also Resonance will be running repeats in weeks to come too. The site has only just been set up but we’re told more details and info will appear soon. You can also follow events here:

Ghost Box is a record label for a group of artists exploring the misremembered musical history of a parallel world.

“Buying one of its releases feels like stepping into another world” The Guardian

“...what's most impressive about Ghost Box is the aesthetic consistency and sheer quality of the material, recalling the heydays of labels such as Factory, 4AD and Warp.” Quietus

“...some of the most delightful electronica to arise in Britain since Aphex Twin, the Black Dog and Global Communication.” The Sunday Times
